Student accused of selling pot-laced brownies, cookies
A Mayo High student faces drug charges for allegedly selling brownies and cookies containing marijuana to other students in school.
Colton James Lake, 17, 866 E. Village Circle S.E., is charged in Olmsted District Juvenile Court with fourth-degree sale of marijuana in a school zone and fifth-degree possession of drugs, both felonies. He is to make his first court appearance April 5.
According to the petition, the Mayo High police liaison officer was contacted by school officials on Dec. 4 after a student reported that a fellow student had talked about getting some marijuana brownies. Two brownies were found in that student's possession. The student said Lake had sold him the brownie. The petition said another student said he purchased a cookie containing marijuana from Lake.
Lake admitted selling the brownies to both students and admitted there was marijuana in the brownies. Lake was found to be in possession of two more of the brownies that were not yet sold. He said he sold the brownies for $3 each, or two for $5. Lake had $18 on his possession.
